? i mean, you're waiting to see what happens with this fiscal cliff? >> i am. i tell you, i think that the christmas gift people are getting right now is to sell above 13,000. we were surprised we're not getting a deal. i'm surprised the market's as firm as it is and it is very easy to overthink this. well, must be firm. the bulls are strong. hey, we go higher. i think that's not the read at all. i think the initial reaction we got when they sent the house of representatives home on thursday night is what we're going to see when they don't get a deal done to the end of the year. i think there is no way. >> you think the market has it wrong here by being this high. >> i do. i think ultimately we're being tropical depression up by the 90 billion a month in fed liquidity but i think that comes home to roost probably as we get closer to the end of the year. the only way we have a shot to get a deal at the end of the year or maybe even early in january is if we have market pressure. right now the market is supplying no pressure to these politicians. so there is no reason for them to do a deal. >> in other words what you're saying is ther

opportunity on two fronts. that we're not replacing the fiscal cliff with a big comprehensive debt deal that would actually fix the problem. and it's a lost opportunity that we seem to be back in washington the same old finger pointing and blame game. and right after the election, i really was hopeful that members of congress would be able to come together and work out these hard issues. we're not there yet, but the fight's not over in that these debt problems are still there facing us. we'll have to go back to january and get into entitlement reform. the job is not close to finished. whatever debt deal they pass today, they agree they come back as quickly as possible and work out these challenges. because the economy will not grow in any meaningful way until we add the stability and certainty of tackling challenges. >> with all due respect, did upg the 112th congress was going to come together on a grand bargaining? >> i was hopeful. leadership starts at the top. i haven't seen much leadership in this town. one thing that happens at the end of the day is we go crashing through this debt ceiling which to me represents the real issue, the real fundamental challenge is we're running $1.3 trillion deficits, been doing that for two or three or four ye

anything, all about the fiscal cliff or what's the mood of the market? >> i'm sorry. >> it's a shame that's all we're talking about right now because there are some things we could probably focus on. >> like what? >> again, it's corporate. it's large corporations. no one is talking about small caps right now. generally in january they probably have a pretty good mood. everybody is talking about dividend-paying stocks, large caps, where there's liquidity, can get in and get out and it all ties back to the fiscal cliff. that's all we're talking about and why do anything until then? >> rick has been waiting all y day. >> whether we're sick of it or not, it has to be resolved. >> meantime, counting down, 50 minutes until the closing bell. the dow was positive when we started the show. let's call it the "street signs" glow. we've gone back into the negative territory slightly. >> see what we can do here in the last hour of the trade. if you don't think people are feel the effects of the fiscal cliff, think again. we look at very real effects of the cliff on holiday sales and the numbers coming out are not all that pretty. plus,
